As the professional Valorant scene gears up for the 2024 season, reigning world champion Evil Geniuses has unveiled its roster, signaling a renewed ambition to maintain its top spot. Key figures like player Alexander “Jawgemo” Mor and coach Christine “Potter” Chi remain integral parts of the team.

Post-Championship Challenges

  • After their victory at VALORANT Champions 2023, Evil Geniuses faced financial troubles, leading to salary cuts.
  • Controversy arose as players were pressed to accept new terms, resulting in some leaving for other teams.

The New 2024 Roster: A Mix of Old and New

Evil Geniuses’ 2024 roster retains the championship-winning expertise of Jawgemo while infusing new talent. Potter continues as the head coach, bringing strategic depth and continuity.

Roster Highlights:

  • Alexander “Jawgemo” Mor: The sole returning player from the world champion squad.
  • New Additions: Phat “Supamen” Le, Nicholas “Nature” Garrison, Derrek “Derrek” Ha, and Vincent “Apotheon” Le.
  • Notably, Derrek is the only new player with experience in last year’s VCT Americas.

Economic Constraints and Strategic Focus

The financial constraints faced by Evil Geniuses have led to a strategic refocus within the competitive gaming scene. They have significantly scaled back their presence in other games, including League of Legends (LCS), Dota 2, and CS2, to concentrate on Valorant.
